Dividing a long shaft.

Newbie here.
I've drawn a shaft that needs to show it's longer than drawn.
EG: In model, shaft is 6", if ever made, it will be 30".
Since the shaft is already drawn, how is a section removed?

    @george_goble, You can change shaft size by many ways as shown in below description and attached video.
    1) If you have created shaft with the help of extrude then change the dimension of extrude.
    2) If you have created shaft by revolve method then change the shaft length from revolve sketch.
    3) You also removed undesired section with the help of direct editing tool "Move Face".
    4) You also removed undesired section with the help of thicken option also.

    In above all method shaft diameter will remain constant. If you want to change length and diameter uniformly then you can perform transform operation scale uniformly. Kindly refer below video for more detail.

    What is the purpose of modeling it 6" if it will be 30"?  Are you trying to show it on a drawing as a broken view?  Otherwise the two examples above would work.  You could also build it as 30" and then select the end of the shaft and do another Extrude (remove) as a distance of 24", leaving 6".  Better suggestions might come from an application of the smaller representation.

    Thanks for the replies. Sorry about the delay in responding.
    The shaft is drawn as needed except I forgot to show it was divided.
    I am going to redraw later to scale. Water pipes broke at the house. Kinda busy.
